When loading windows XP I am not getting the same issue saying windows can not open.
so it working now?
With xp and newer mb and Sata hard drive. If the old mb was set to IDE you have to set the new mb Sata ports to IDE. On clean install of xp put the intel chipset drivers...sound card drivers and network drivers on a USB stick or cd and hit f6 when windows installer starts to do a custom driver install.
